Nearly two and a half years ago, the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) officially approved the Darwin Information Typing Architecture Standard 1.0, completing the transition from many years of software development at IBM, reaching back to the mid-1990’s before the introduction of XML.
The FrameMaker-DITA group is moderated by Kay (Ethier) Whatley. It is a private effort by a team of individuals and is not a corporate project.
The group is a large, interacting community of hundreds (900 as of October 2007).
Emails not on point may be declined by the moderator. Information posted is not copyrighted to the group but to the original poster.
DITA Users help one another become topic-based authors.
We are an international membership organization (400 members from 21 countries) that includes
- Individuals learning DITA.
- Organizations moving to single-source authoring and multi-channel publishing.
- Vendors of XML Editors and XML Content Management Systems.
The website provides members with individual workspaces for their DITA documents.
This mailing list to support DITA was set up as a Yahoo Group by IBM in May 2004 and called the IBM DITA Forum.
It now has over 1500 members and is the main mailing list for the DITA community.
This group is for discussion and mutual support of people in the United Kingdom who use the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA). It is intended to give a more UK-focused venue than the http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/dita-users/ group.
